Question EA XR6 - Rocker Cover Torque Specs?

Hi there,

Was wondering if anyone could tell me the torque specs and bolt order that the EA XR6 rocker cover needs to be refastened at?

Cheers,
Jamie

Howdy there,

I presume you mean the EA six. The XR6 was not around at the time. This has been discussed before, but I would probably take hours to find it. If no one here knows, I'd suggest going to this forum:

It's 7-12Nm.
Don't go too tight because the things are real easy to crack.

Hmmm the Ford Manual in the engine specs section says Stud 20NM and Nut 6Nm but in the picture earlier in the manual its shown as 7 -12 Nm for the nut. 7nm sounds a good number. All these were with the OEM cork gasket. The neoprene gaskets usually come with instructions and a recommended torque,

Just out of interest, how much does a torque wrench cost? Where can I get one?

Depends on size and brand $20 to $200+. Cheapies are at Marlows, Kmart, Rocco Bros etc. Better at Repco etc and tools specialists. Cheap are Ok but you will find that you need a range of about three from mini to large to cover all ranges.

hehe well obviously the 120Y is getting a section dedicated to it. The Stanza is a car I don't know so much about. I suppose it was more of a mid-way point between the 180B/200B and the Bluebird. And like those cars, sheer toughness was its forte.
